Kami *Special Needs*

5 Year old Female / Available at the Rescue

Introducing Kami: A Special Pug in Need of a Loving Home

Hello there! Meet Kami, an adorable 5-year-old female pug with a heart full of love and a unique condition called Masticatory Myositis. Kami’s previous owner made the difficult decision to relinquish her to Pug Nation due to financial constraints, as her medical condition requires ongoing care and specialized treatment. However, we are hopeful that with the right medications and care, Kami’s condition can improve significantly.

Masticatory Myositis affects Kami’s jaw, causing it to lock up, which limits her ability to open her mouth. Even under sedation at the vet’s office, they were unable to unlock her jaw, leaving Kami with a jaw that only opens a few centimeters. This condition makes it challenging for Kami to eat normally, but she has been managing with a special diet and liquid medications. Despite the messiness that comes with it, she has been gaining weight and doing well under our care.

While we cannot predict what the future holds for Kami’s condition, we can assure you that she is currently happy and content. She shares a strong bond with her human caregivers and enjoys the company of other dogs. Kami’s resilient spirit shines through, and she simply craves safety, love, and a forever home where she can feel cherished.

We understand that Kami’s special needs require additional care and attention. We are searching for compassionate individuals or families who are willing to provide her with the love, patience, and support she deserves. Kami’s ideal adopter would be someone who can accommodate her unique dietary requirements, administer her medications, and remain dedicated to exploring potential treatments that may improve her condition.

If you are up to the challenge of caring for a special pug like Kami, we invite you to meet her and see the beautiful soul that lies behind those limited jaw movements. Kami’s unwavering love and loyalty are guaranteed to make your heart melt. Help us give Kami the chance to experience the joy of a forever home, where she can be safe, cherished, and surrounded by the love she deserves.

If you are interested in adopting Kami or becoming a long-term foster for her, please reach out to Pug Nation, and we will gladly provide you with more information and arrange a meeting. Together, let’s give Kami the second chance she truly deserves.
